Building Tour: Virgin Hotel
Wednesday, November 20th
Virgin Hotel | Architect - Hastings
Situated on the edge of Nashvilles famed Music Row at 17th Avenue South, the Virgin Hotel Nashville is positioned between Vanderbilt, the rapidly transforming Midtown neighborhood, and the burgeoning Gulch district. Designed in partnership with Blur Workshop, the 14-story, 262-key luxury hotel contains Virgin Hotels flagship space known as The Commons Club, a rooftop lounge with an infinity pool, a gym and 10,000 square feet of meeting and event space. Sitting atop a topographic highpoint, the upper floors of the hotel will have commanding views of the surrounding environment, highlighted by dramatic views of Downtown Nashville.
Authenticity and craft inspire the design, sentiments prevalent throughout early 20th-century urban utilitarian structures. The modern interpretation of this inspiration focuses on form, order, texture, and materiality. Brick masonry detailing provides appropriate scale and texture, while a celebrated expression of post and lintel construction is evident on the primary tower façade. The façade is punctuated with large windows which reference warehouse glazing from the previous century.
Hard hats, closed toed shoes, and safety vests are required. The interiors is still very much under construction.
